John Edwards For Labor Secretary

  Hear me out: this is an argument as much about the place of workers’ issues in the future Administration, as it is an argument for making John Edwards the next Labor Secretary.   When it comes to tackling the economic crisis, the president-elect has been pre-occupied, personnel-wise, with the question of who will be […]

A Super Delegate Strategy–With Content, On Trade

    I’m frankly unmoved by the arguments circulating that so-called super-delegates have to vote one way or another. The system for political primaries is broken and the super-delegate issue–discovered mainly by people who never objected to their status before–is just one problem. But, since the super-delegates may have a crucial role at the Democratic convention, […]

Sens. Clinton and Obama: Can We Talk Some Truth About Trade?

  Today, I have two very specific questions for Sens. Obama and Clinton that have nothing do with whether they would choose pearls over diamonds, what underwear they might don or how much they paid for a haircut but, rather, what they would do as president in handling trade around the globe. I hope these […]

The Fog on Trade

Yesterday, I wrote that neither Sens. Clinton nor Obama are reliable on the issues of trade. Today, there is a bit more evidence to support that notion. It would be helpful if partisans of both camps stop pointing fingers so that we can have a clear-headed debate about trade.   In today’s New York Times, […]

Who Knew NAFTA Had So Many Enemies?

   I passed on watching the debate last night (it’s just not that interesting, frankly) but, after hearing that NAFTA was attacked by both candidates, I had to go back and read the transcript. My conclusion: neither Sen. Clinton or Sen. Obama understand the issue of trade, or they will be unwilling to make the […]

Why We Miss John Edwards’ Voice on Trade and Globalization

    I was struck today, as I have been for the past several weeks, at the void created when John Edwards suspended his campaign for president. Today, it was on the issue of trade and globalization, courtesy of a piece in The Wall Street Journal entitled "Decoding Candidates On Trade."     Here’s an important paragraph, […]

Where Did The Union Vote Go On Super Tuesday?

    Before yours truly goes out to the picket lines for the Writers Guild of America (Time Warner Center Noon-2 p.m. for those of you in NYC…and, who knows, maybe this will be one of the last picket lines of the strike if the deal being discussed among the members this weekend passes muster), I […]

Edwards–The Al Gore of Economic Struggle?

    So, John Edwards is dropping out of the presidential race. From trade to an ability to really talk about unions and on whole lots of other issues, Edwards shaped the Democratic presidential debate.     The question is: what now? I’m hoping that he becomes the Al Gore of economic struggles. Gore rose dramatically in […]

On Trade, A Stark Difference Between Obama and Edwards

Everyone seems to be focused on the back-and-forth between Sens. Clinton and Obama on…well, you figure it out. But, the most telling moments–and, I believe, the most important subject matter of the entire debate–came when Sen. Obama and John Edwards debated the question of the so-called "free trade" deal with Peru.   The first inkling […]
